Corner Member Close Up: Jim Garrison

It's Friday, which means it's time for a "Corner Member Close Up" photographer interview. And honestly, I had this one set up well in advance, but it just happened to work out that our interviewee is also the winner of the 2011 Premiere Project Photograph of the Year contest - jim3584! We've got more than 2 dozen fantastic photographs below, as well as some great stories and advice. It's my pleasure to introduce you to Jim Garrison from Morrison, Colorado!

"The Walk About" is the 2011 Premiere Project Photograph of the Year

After a week of voting (check out the voting results here), the community has decided that “The Walk About” by jim3584, the winning photograph of Premiere Project #109: Reflections, is the best Premiere Project photograph from 2011! Congratulations, Jim, for winning the third annual Premiere Project Photograph of the Year contest!!!

Premiere Projects, hosted in the Premiere Corner every couple of weeks, are group photography projects where Premiere Members challenge themselves to grow as photographers by participating in themed “assignments.” Each project outlines a topic for the members to photograph. The photos are then submitted for discussion/critiquing/reactions. At the end of the project period, a vote is held to determine which photo best represents the theme while maintaining high photographic quality.

If you haven’t already, join the over 400 Premiere Members for HALF PRICE! The half price sale ends on Friday, February 10th, 2012. As a Premiere Member you can win bigger prices in contests, participate in Premiere Projects, have access to private forums, special rank icons and custom ranks. Check out all the benefits here, and sign up to become a Premiere Membership here.

The contest was sponsored by Think Tank Photo - a group of designers and professional photographers focused on studying how photographers work, and developing inventive new carrying solutions to meet their needs. By focusing on “speed” and “accessibility,” they prepare photographers to Be Ready “Before The Moment,” allowing them to capture those historic moments that reflect their personal visions and artistic talents. For some companies, it is only about the product. For them, it is more: It is about supporting photographers doing their job. If Think Tank can design products that help photographers travel easier, take pictures faster, and organize their gear more efficiently, then they will have accomplished something beyond the bags themselves. As a special offer to members of PhotographyCorner, when you order $50 or more of Think Tank gear through this link, at checkout you will be able to select a product to receive for free! For winning the PPPotY, Jim will receive a Think Tank Photo Retrospective® 5 camera bag (Valued at $137.50)!

If you haven’t already, be sure to drop by the award thread in the Photograph of the Year forum to congratulate Jim on his win!
